Altmetric for Scopus
Scopus has announced that it has incorporated a new Altmetric service for article level metrics within its database. The altmetric service will capture information from social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, mainstream media, and reference managers such as Mendeley, to illustrate how scholarly articles are being used beyond academia. I think this is a nice complement to the citation information currently contained in Scopus, and integration of these different sources in one place is great.
